Nursery care for Toddlers Ages 2 - 3 Years

Next steps...

Moving up to the toddler group from babies introduces more creative learning, and responsibility. We'll be covering things like potty training, learning to self serve at the dinner table, and independence. 

Uniform is compulsory in Toddler groups which helps the children feel a part of the group, and encourage responsibility, and independence. 

As with the babies group, we will continue to complete A Communication Diary, and Learning Record which we will share with you.

There are bigger rooms, and many more things to do during the day in Toddlers!


The Toddlers Rooms

The toddler room is spread over two large rooms on the ground floor of Moorevilla. The back room is the creative and social area, and it's also where we all eat around the table together. The front room is where we learn about numbers, read, play music, and do a little bit of dressing up to make it fun.

Sand & water trays – bucket spades, jugs – We encourage children to make own choices and interact. While it may seem like simple playing, this helps personal & social development, communication, and maths

Easel & Creative table – Painting & Chalkboard, Painting table – We might make a collage, paint a picture, or learn about colours and textures. It helps with hand eye co-ordination, and gets us thinking and being creative.

Maluable area – play dough, gloop, pasta, flour – This improves our senses of textures and touch.

Small world area – This is were we can pretend to be anything we want. Simple role playing teaches confidence, self, and interaction with others. It also gives us an opportunity to teach how to manage behaviour and feeling using dolls and figures. We teach about families & cultures, disabilities, community, and places they might see such as shops and garages.

Construction – Yes we can! Foam & wooden bricks, megabricks, duplo, connecting blocks and toy hammers and drills.  We encourage the children to build and use their imagination by building houses, castles, zoos, and much more. This develops imaginative thinking, co-ordination, communication, personal skills and encouraging friends to join in. We also throw a little counting in to improve maths.

Dining Table - We all sit around one large table, both staff and children, and it is considered to be the most important part of day bring everyone together.  Before dinner we all sing songs together and talk.  In toddlers group, children are taught to self serve, which encourages independence.  We also teach how to use cutlery, and importantly, manners such as  please and thank you for dinner, politeness, and sharing. There are a choice of two meals – meat or veg option on a 4 week rotation. 

Maths Area - The front room houses a Maths area with abacus, jigsaw, dominoes, matching games, hand eye co-ordination games, and basic counting.

Book Corner – Interactive, and hardback books, and a puppet show which can be operated by both children and staff.  Before lunch and before tea, we have a story time and sing songs with props and musical instruments – shakers, bells, tambourines, drums, xylophone, keyboard.

Writing table – We learn to hold pens and crayons, draw shapes, and trace pictures.

Role play area - Our large playhouse can be a cafe florist, bakery, shop, or a hospital. We learn about different cultures, food, and menus which help children understand the world, and their community through imaginative play.

Dressing up – Multicultural dress, fantasy clothing, animals, doctors, police. All of these costumes stimulate the imagination and help to understand the world as well as simpler things like learning to dress and undress themselves.

Our Extracurricular Teams

We also invite extracurricular teams to Highfield Nursery, to involve the children in a range of activities.

Petite acting academy

Petite acting academy is an innovative performing and creative arts drama school for children aged 1-11. They use music and drama in a programme of action, songs, puppets, basic drama and movement skills.

The focus is on creativity and the curriculum to ensure our budding actors and actresses build confidence and self esteem in a safe and friendly environment, as well as learning.

Blackpool FC Community Trust

Once a week, we are visited by Blackpool FC Community Trust who offer the children football coaching.

The sessions help to increase confidence and co-ordination, as well as help their transition from nursery to primary school by giving them the opportunity to engage with other children. Your child will develop their fundamental skills whilst enjoying themselves during a variety of fun and interactive games. BUT IT IS NOT JUST PHYSICAL!  The sessions help develop other skills from mathematics and literacy to personal, social and emotional development which are all key areas of learning (AOL) for EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage).


Plenty of fresh air

We have a 1 acre garden, so whenever possible, we take the children out to learn and play in our large gardens. There are tunnels, gazebo, see saws, climbing frames, ball pool, large play farm, and a sand pit.

As Moorevilla Nursery is also situated in a semi rural area, the children will be taken for short walks on a regular basis . Fresh air and country surroundings provide excellent opportunity for babies to develop awareness and language skills.
